We brought up a copy of W7, installed IE 8, and installed eValid V9 and ran our entire internal test suite. New W7 users can have confidence that eValid can readily test web applications that run on Microsoft's newest OS.

One goal of this course is to have diagnose web site design and usability problems and recommend improvements to the web site owners. Students will use eValid to create sitemaps, calculate web site metrics, and perform other analytic functions. The results will be used to examine website navigation design issues, identify broken or incorrect links, and pinpoint slow-loading pages and investigate other performance related issues.
Prof. Van Scotter's class will be organized into 6-7 groups and each group will be comparing 4-5 websites.

Some recurring questions come up, however, because the eValid method is so unlike any of other several non-client-side, non-browser based scanning technologies. The fact that the eValid scanner is built into a browser sometimes
blurs users' understanding of what's going on.
Here's a short Explanation of Key Facts about Site Analysis that aims to answer some of the most common questions users have about eValid's site analysis (spider). If you have more questions please don't hesitate to ask!
Extremely Robust Tests Are Based on Structural Page Features
Thursday, 22 October 2009 — 2:00 PM Eastern Time / 11:00 AM Pacific Time
When web applications change in subtle ways, your functional/loading/monitoring tests may begin to fail if your test scripts are brittle.
New eValid capabilities make it possible to prevent test failures due to non-consequential changes to your web application. Using Index/Motion commands you can develop an Algorithmic/Structural tests that can handle any AJAX or Web 2.0 application -- even when page structure and details (but not essential intent and effect) -- change substantially.
Learn how to achieve greater productivity with smaller budgets, maximize your IT investments, and get more work done in less time with less energy.
Build reliable, robust AJAX/Web 2.0 tests once -- and you won't have to worry about them again.
- Introduction to eValid's Architecture.
- Functional Test Creation: "What you see and do, is what eValid records, is what eValid reproduces".
- Methodology Overview: Record From Life, Adapt From Page Facts
- Index/Motion (Algorithmic/Structural) Command Summary
- Typical Script Passages: "Recorded From Life" and Structural Versions
- Script Enhancement for AJAX/Web 2.0: Bullet-Proofing Your Playback
- Practical Experience & Recommendations

One goal of this course is to have students use eValid to perform regression testing, loading, and site analysis activities on student-developed websites. All of the projects are involved are being done for real clients of the Center, and all of these developments involve a browser-based user interface. The class will be organized into 14 teams and each team will be responsible for one project that runs through the entire school year.

All in all, some ~65 students in the course will be using eValid to test a particular tree-processing example program's GUI component.
We're pleased to be able to support this coursework in this way and we hope to continue to provide eValid support to SJSU and other academic institutions in the future.
